YouTuber Mr Beast Donates $1million Worth Of Essentials To Food Banks

YouTuber Mr. Beast, known for his expensive stunts, has donated over $1million of food to various food banks; many of which have been hit hard by covid-19.

Food banks are finding it harder than ever to encourage donations from the public, particularly as many people have taken to panic buying and stockpiling goods during the coronavirus pandemic.

published at7 months ago

As the coronavirus pandemic continues around the world, food banks are finding it increasingly more difficult to get donations. This is particularly difficult for the Food Bank of the Albemarle, where staff worker said: "Two weeks ago, meat was very scarce.

"It was hard to find."

At the end of the video, having delivered all of the food from the six trucks Mr. Beast is seen talking with the Smithfield program manager Jonathan and urging viewers to donate and encourage more donations as part of Feeding America's COVID-19 Response Fund.

For every $1 donated to the fund, Smithfield will provide one more serving of protein to food banks in need. If Mr.Beast's audience of over 33 million subscribers can help raise a total of $1 million for the fund, Smithfield will double its donation, providing two servings for every $1 contributed.
